Thomas E. Woods, author of Rollback: Repealing Big Government Before the Coming Fiscal Collapse, discusses Ron Paul as an economic prophet of sorts (revered by devout followers, scorned by the majority); Woods’s personal transformation from party-line Republican to peace and liberty advocate; Paul’s paradigm shifting moment, where he stood up to Rudy Giuliani’s ignorant tirade about 9/11 in the 2008 Republican primaries; and how the college kids who are reading Mises instead of Keynes – thanks to Ron Paul – could change academia for a generation.

  1. Ron Paul, biggest nepotist inside the beltway, was a shill for Romney, in the vain hope that Rand would get the veep tap.

    Shallow….

  2. Ah well.

    If god told him do do it, that makes all the difference in the world.

  3. Please take a long walk off a short peer. Thank you.

  4. Dont know if i would go that far but it sure would be nice to hear him address that issue. Even just a short statement. The silence is most disappointing. Could the antithesis merely be the ingredient the thesis required to achieve synthesis?

  5. Just remember that beautiful spring when Ron would conquer all
    Be happy that the word finally got out. Now,
    ………go back to your jobs, Peasants.
    ………do as you are told.
    ………buy what you do not need
    ………above all accept your fate, and
    ………wait another hundred years for the next savior
    ………fools.

  6. Ron Paul is great and deserves the praise he has received, but now what?

  7. Ron Paul — The secular solution to a criminal government

    A self-evident fact, now all we need do is find a moral solution to an immoral society, a thing which many would argue has a “Catch 22.” The logic being, you can’t have a moral society until after you have an honest government.

    But then, everyone including the good, bad and indifferent, they want the most honest candidate to be elected judge, if for no other reason than self-preservation.

    Notwithstanding, time is the great arbitrator of true, Ron Paul is on the right side of history and our job is to try and speed up history.

  8. Ron Paul should never be perceived as a political savior but rather a messenger.
